Rovers chief executive Steve Waggott doesn’t anticipate an ‘ultra crazy’ final few days of the transfer window.

Championship sides have until 5pm on Thursday to complete their transfer business, with Rovers still eyeing the possibility of a second goalkeeping and defensive signing of the window.

Tony Mowbray says the club won’t be actively looking to move players out but some fringe senior players could be allowed to leave to help finance incomings should the opportunity arise in the next two days.

Rovers replaced the outgoing David Raya with the loan addition of Brighton goalkeeper Christian Walton, with Tosin Adarabioyo signed on loan from Manchester City to bolster the defensive ranks.

Another goalkeeping option isn’t a priority, but would allow Andrew Fisher to gain further experience out on loan before the League One and League Two deadline of August 31, while another defender would add depth after last season’s struggles.

Rovers suffered a dip in form after the loss of Darragh Lenihan to injury in February and will be wary of avoiding a repeat of that this season. 

“We are still looking, I don’t think it going to be ultra crazy for us but if anything pops up where we feel we could be interested we will look,” Waggott said.

“If there is anything else that comes up that we feel will give us a bit more strength in depth and adds to the squad then we will have a look at that as well.”

Rovers have so far made one cash signing, bringing in striker Sam Gallagher for £5m from Southampton.

David Raya became the first seven-figure sale since January 2017 when he was sold to Brentford for £3m, while Joe Nuttall left for Blackpool for an undisclosed fee last week.

The striker’s move is understood to have pocketed Rovers in the region of £500,000 initially, with several clauses and incentives included in the deal.

Mowbray was always keen to add a striker in this window, to help alleviate the pressure on Danny Graham, with 23-year-old Gallagher a long-term target having been tracked for the last two windows.

Though Waggott said the sales weren’t needed to fund the move for Gallagher.

“Sam was a very long-term target for Tony, it took a while,” Waggott added.

“He’s been asked to come back to the Championship so there were lots of discussions between him, his club and his agent.

“But he was always No.1 target for Tony.

“He’s his type of player with his movement, work rate and how he fits in to the DNA of the team.

“The big target was Sam and could we get him.

“It was on off on off and eventually we got him.”

Mowbray was also keen to add experience to his squad, with that arriving in the form of free agents Stewart Downing and Bradley Johnson, with Walton and Adarabioyo next through the door on season-long loan deals.

On the club’s summer business so far, the chief executive said: “Tony wanted some more maturity and game management in the team hence why Downing and Bradley Johnson have come in.

“We have supplemented that with the goalkeeper as well.”
